Paternalistic Bond: From Childhood to Adulthood

In silted apron blossoms baby Incubating heat fondles canopy From leafy trellis sprouts progeny With briny tears, warmth grows quickly Acorn melded to fertile tree Succoring streams flow freely Ballasted perch shared dutifully Fragile shell tendered stem's realty Paternal arms clasp twig-end tightly Structural beams foster stability Nutrients funnel expanding the cavity Well-rounded hull with shared identity Truant winds the bond doth atrophy Shaking strands that clutch lovingly Ripening acorn longs new vistas to see With heavy heart falls from caring tree Dry, barren ground leaches each gratuity Rotting leaves fondle exterior incessantly Surface ambitions soiled by limited mobility Predatory marauders pilfer each, bright opportunity Acorn will not stray far from security Paternal shadow hovers patiently With overarching wings shield calamity During trials, trickle down tears of empathy
